Hypnosis is a powerful tool that everyone can benefit from. It is truly the ultimate catalyst for lasting transformation and long-term change. From helping you to quit undesirable habits and addictions, healing anxiety and burnout to aligning with your heart’s true desires, creating more success in your life and manifesting abundance and better health. Unfortunately, it is largely misunderstood, and I see many clients who only try it after they’ve literally tried everything.
Hypnotherapy to Quit Smoking
Most people heard of hypnosis as a powerful tool to help quit smoking commonly known as smoking cessation. Hypnosis addresses the psychological aspects of your addiction and looks into your underlying motivations for smoking. It indeed can help overcome the psychological addiction to smoking as long as you sincerely want to quit the habit for yourself and not because someone insisted that you go and see a hypnotherapist because they do not like your habit.
Hypnotherapy and Weight Loss
Another popular issue that people go to a hypnotherapist is weight loss. A common program used in such cases is the virtual gastric band. Besides this, hypnosis can help develop healthy eating habits and a healthier relationship with food, exercise and your body.
Hypnotherapy from Depression and Anxiety
Hypnosis is gaining more popularity as a relief from depression and anxiety. That’s partly because hypnosis is entirely natural, and you can’t get addicted it. And unlike medication, which deals primarily with symptoms, hypnosis helps you get to the root of the problem that anchored you in this unhelpful state in the first place. It helps you rewire your brain to shed the underlying cause. It is important to note, that this is not the case for severe cases of depression and anxiety where medication is required to help a person function. Sometimes, hypnosis alone is not enough, and a client should be referred to a medical professional for immediate attention.
Hypnotherapy Boosts Confidence and Self-Esteem
Hypnosis is successfully used to increase confidence and self-esteem, especially help with Imposter Syndrome. Specialists and therapists tried to apply various methods to combat imposter syndrome, and most of them are Psychotherapy techniques. But recent studies point to hypnotherapy as one of the best ways to overcome imposter syndrome.
Hypnosis can help you develop a loving relationship with yourself leading to a deeper appreciation and a confident, positive outlook on life and your own abilities. But moreover, hypnotherapy can help improve your confidence and self-belief around specific areas, such as in work or relationships, or to boost your confidence around a specific goal such as giving a presentation in front of your colleagues or assertiveness in social situations.
Hypnotherapy for Fears and Phobias
Fears and Phobias is another very common request I come across in my hypnotherapy practice. When dealing with phobias a lot of the times one session helps to resolve the issue as hypnosis helps revisit and rewire experiences and underlying events that initially caused the phobia. Fears can be trickier as often they lead to such fears as fear of failure or rejection. These matters are complex and require a number of sessions to find the resolution and heal the underlying cause of this condition.
Hypnotherapy in Sport and Physical Performance
Many professional athletes such as Michael Jourdan, Mohammed Ali and Tiger Woods admitted to using hypnosis to enhance their performance in sport. It helped them prepare for their next challenge using techniques such as relaxation, visualisation, and focusing, all designed to improve their mental stamina. Why not use hypnosis to help yourself become more motivated, capable, and dedicated to your exercise goals?
Hypnotherapy and Pain Relief
Hypnotherapy has been used for decades to help manage chronic physical pain. You can find it as a recommendation on the Cancer Council websites. Hypnosis is also used to help alleviate physical pain during childbirth or even surgery. It is used in surgeries for patients who cannot receive traditional anaesthesia due to health issues.
Hypnotherapy, Mindset Blocks and Professional Performance
More and more entrepreneurs and high-performance C-suite executives turn to hypnosis to boost their professional performance and enhance their mental state for success, leadership skills, creativity, clarity and goal-centred focus.
Hypnotherapy can help you make progress in any area where you would like to act more effectively and purposefully, such as emotional awareness, increased productivity, creativity and improved positive mindset. It is used to help release any deep-rooted money mindset blocks and other limiting beliefs that stall you on your way towards success and life that you want to lead but afraid to take action towards. Why wait? Use hypnotherapy to help you solidify personal goals and enhance motivation, focus and determination!
